We are so thankful that The Brattle was able to survive our COVID closure. Thank you!

Community support has been an essential part of the way forward over the last few difficult years and is an integral part of our recovery plan. 

The current financial realities cannot be ignored—attendance is only about 60% what it was before COVID.

You play a critical role in making our work possible when you make a donation to The Brattle.

Please help us continue to be resilient as we work to rebuild and recover.

Your generosity will enable us to continue to bring you the best in independent, cult, and classic films in 2022, and for years to come.

Thank you!

Before initiating a gift, please contact Ivy Moylan at 617-876-8021 or, so that we know to expect the securities you are donating and can promptly acknowledge your contribution.
